NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for random (netbsd section 6)

RANDOM(6)				 BSD Games Manual				RANDOM(6)

NAME
     random -- random lines from a file or random numbers

SYNOPSIS
     random [-er] [denominator]

DESCRIPTION
     random reads lines from the standard input and copies them to the standard output with a
     probability of 1/denominator.  The default value for denominator is 2.

     The options are as follows:

     -e      If the -e option is specified, random does not read or write anything, and simply
	     exits with a random exit value of 0 to denominator-1, inclusive.

     -r      The -r option guarantees that the output is unbuffered.

SEE ALSO
     shuffle(1), fortune(6)
